Of course it's sarcasm, even I used it!
Seriously, you should learn that we use it always.
I'm even starting to thing Cierra was being sarcastic.

I seriously recommend you add to this tut, or it'll end up at the back of the forum, collecting dust and bad internet puns.

If I had wanted you to know my age, I would have made it publicly available. But this is getting horribly off-topic.

I agree with S.U.R.F on his point about dynamic vs. static offsets. If you are going to use the "dynamic" preprocessing directive, then you'd better be using dynamic offsets as well, else you render the "dynamic" useless. The difference between the two would make a fine tutorial for newbies. Perhaps something also about using them together in a single script so as to recycle old segments of scripts along with new ones? Now there's an idea!

Can't yall just stop trying to criticize this guy,after all he was trying to help.But Ray maybe you shouldn't have done this tut if your a beginner your self.All it is really is just taking and looking over scripts that are already inserted and see what you could do with scripting,this isn't a "quick" way to script it's simply either cut and paste,or looking over the scripts to see what you can come up with.But yeah Everyone needs to stop picking with Ray,and instead of criticizing him make a tut of your own or look at another tut rather than waste time here!!!

I agree, this is a great altrnative to scripting for those who are new, can't get a scripter, don't have the time to script, or are struggling to learn scripting.

Machommu,you've hitted the point.That's why this tutorial exist, for those who are new, can't get a scripter, don't have the time to script, or are struggling to learn scripting. I am using that method, because of these issues.

personally, I prefer to use advance text for text editing, because it's easier, quicker, and it can use the original offset. Your way, however, takes a little more time, space, and effort, although I don't know how to edit the item/pokemon/amount in a-text, and it doesn't include every script, and you can't make the script longer with out risking glitches. In other words, for big script edits, or scripts missing from a-text, use this because sometimes a script is hard to remake.

We don't talking about text editing here,we talk about scripting.

No offense intended, but this method can be really dangerous, plus it promotes laziness, which reduces the overall quality of hacks. -__-

Man people are still fussing about how this thread helps?
Listen if it helps some people than that's great,but everyone here should stop saying how bad the thread is,its as simple as this Ray.Tell those who criticize to never come back to your thread,I've had people do the same,and I told them they're not allowed to post and look at my thread,and well they never did after that.So tell them Ray...

I'm not saying it's a piece of bull, but I'm just saying it can be dangerous. Also, Ray, I never said you were lazy, I'm just saying this method promotes laziness.

Also, "tyson", if you're driving criticizers, the people who tell you what's wrong so you can fix things, away, then how are you going to get people to tell you what's wrong?
